    A special lady to many family members who remember her back in Missouri.

    I felt Ruth’s love throughout my life, and thought of her as a second mom. My childhood memories include the summer visits from the entire Hill family back to her Missouri home. Those visits are long gone at this point, but I continued to speak with Ruth over the years by phone, and was privileged to see her & Ed one last time at their Sacramento home in 2012. I shall miss her always, and I will never forget her kind, gentle and loving spirit. May the peace of Christ be with the entire family of my beloved Aunt Ruth Hill.

    It was an honor to care for Ruth, she enriched our everyday moments, with her tenacious spirit, sweetness, strength, sense of humor and smiles. Each and every one of the Golden Moments Girls has shared a special bond with Ruth, Most of us calling her ‘Mom’, as she was mom, really, to all who were blessed to know her. Always watching out for the other residents and making sure everyone is okay, to also letting us know what chores needed to be done. But to me, she was also, ‘My Girl’. She is truly missed by all of us, but will forever be remembered and cherished in our hearts. Denise at Golden Moments Care Home.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Hill family. Ruth and Ed have been a part of my life since I was born and consider them to be my second parents. My parents introduced them and they fell in love and married . Our families have over the years spent holidays, vacations and many wonderful times together. I truly will miss Ruth and know she at peace.
